If you have an SUV, then you're probably going to want to use it off-road sometime. After all, that's what it's designed for. But if you have no time to get out of the city, then no problem. Just use Sprayonmud
to make it look like you've had a wild time driving around the country:
Sprayonmud is a specially formulated spray-on product for anyone that wants to give friends, neighbours, colleagues or just anyone at all, the impression that they have been off-road or, at the very least, out in the country for the weekend...
Sprayonmud comes in an easy-to-use plastic bottle which is just the right size for hiding in a green Wellington boot. Keep it in your garage, in the boot, or anywhere you like. Sprayonmud can be applied to your vehicle in seconds, but just be careful the neighbours don’t catch you using it! And remember, you’ve been visiting friends in the country!
Mud in a bottle. What will they think of next?

Fake mud seems to me like it would appeal to Hummer drivers, whose theme song should be "Tomorrow Belongs To Me."
How about canned snow for Eskimoes on summer holidays?
All he did was make a brown color, painted it in splotches, reduced the opacity a little on the paint and erased out the parts where the tail lights are... very "professional"
I'd venture to say that no, this isn't photoshopped... it's "MS Painted"
Imagine somebody buying mud, though. I mean, where could you possibly live where you couldn't easily get mud for free? Even in Manhattan it's very easy to find.
"Imagine somebody buying mud, though. I mean, where could you possibly live where you couldn't easily get mud for free? Even in Manhattan it's very easy to find."
Sure is. Hey, Manhattan even used to have The Mudd Club, way back when. Two blocks south of Canal St. if I remember correctly.
"As for Hummers, it's obvious that people only buy them because (1) 10 miles per gallon is just too good for them, or (2) It's too much trouble to always carry around a sign that says, "I'm an obnoxious *sshole."
At least up to a couple of years ago, SUV's in general were marketed in a way that suggested to me that the industry had determined that the potential buyers felt the need to be protected from the world around them and also thought of themselves as being "superior" in some way to those around them.
Remember the commercial in which the female SUV driver is in a mall parking lot and she spots an empty space in the next aisle? There's another woman driver in the same aisle as the spot. Driver Number One drives over a traffic island to beat her to the space. She has a very smug look on her face when she "wins."
Or how about the Hummer spot in which the kid in a soap box derby race has a "car" that looks like a miniature Hummer. He cheats by driving across the zig-zagging track and "wins."
The music for that spot was The Who's "Happy Jack" using the part "...and they couldn't prevent Jack from being happy." I think that's the attitude of the person Hummer is aiming at: the world is out to prevent him/her from attaining the happiness he/she is intended by God to have. Sad.
You missed the point of the Jack commercial. At one point the rules are flashed on the screen. They are "The last one to the bottom wins". Jack took a creative approach and won, because is car could do things the others could't. He went don't the same hill as the others, just did it off road. Despite being laughed at for this car's appearance (i.e. can't keep jack from being happy), Jack knew his car had other potential. The commercial encourages people to think differently about their cars...
"Obviously we can learn a lot about a person by what they drive. What do you drive cranky?"
Well, the Mrs. and I tool around in an '01 Ford Explorer. We got it because we had to drive to Virginia from Idaho to retrieve some stuff from a storage locker we had there and we were going to have to pull a small trailer back.
While I've been on the beach here in Oregon with it, we've never gone officially "off-road" with the Ford.
I did say that the TV and print ads for SUV's were pitched to those who felt superior up to a few years back. I think they've changed their advertising tactics recently because the makeup of SUV purchasers has changed. In the late 90's and early 2000's, it seemed to me that they were pitched at people who felt that the world was out to get them and wanted "protection" from hostile forces.
Between my work and my home is a twisty cobbled road with very poor pavements (that'd be sidewalks for all you from the US).
Approximately once a week, I am nearly mown down on this road. Not because I'm not using the green cross code, but because people think they can speed around wherever the hell they like.
I would say that 2/3 of these times it has been SUVs.
I never really thought much about it until I started working where I work.
This couldn't be any more stupid!!!
They actually took thier vehicles offroad. Don't have everyone in a hummer, just those that diserve it.
And for those who have been commenting on the driving habits of SUV owners, might I point out a small bit of information about human memory? Humans tend to remember that which reinforces their previous attitudes or experiences. If you think SUV drivers are a bunch of obnoxious jerks, then incident that reinforce that attitude will be remembered more often than those that run counter to that. This might be genetic stemming from our days as hunter/gatherers. Such positive reinforcement probably got more game or fruit or whatever.
Just been reading a few comments (some informed) on your website and can confirm that we have had worldwide media and customer interest (220,000 hits on our website and rising)in our new and exciting product - well exciting for me as incredible sales have meant we have had to go down the Shropshire (secret location on Wenlock Edge) mud mines everyday to excavate more supplies to keep shipments going all around the word - and if you thought that is the English speaking world you would be wrong as Germany is our biggest market by a mile. Here's mud in your eyes you renegades!! pip pip
Oh, and for Christopher - I know exactly what you mean, but from my own experiences, I started noting what, if any, cars nearly ran me down from the first day I had to walk to work from our new house.
SUVs are more likely to speed and ignore pedestrians in this instance.
Of course, this is only noted for this particular stretch of road.
So really, none of this had meaning. Never mind.
